My sister lent me a book called  (I think) The Art Doll Project.  It was a swap with a group of artists that didn't know each other, like us.  Anywho...each one made a very basic doll out of whatever they wanted and a journal to go with it and the dolls were passed from artist to artist and each would add their own touches and write in the journal about what they did and why.  When they were done they would pass it on to the next artist and they would do the same. After everyone had a chance to add their own touch you would get your own doll back and be able to read about everything people did.  It was very cool, some would write from the doll's perspective , one person's journal was actually individual tiny boxes that had handmade paper in them and each artist knew what box was theirs to write in because it was wrapped in a map of their home town.  Not all dolls were sewn, one was a wooden box with a torso and arms inside and that was it.  One was a store bought Madeleine doll that they ended up doing really funky things to.  I would think it would be a great way to stretch our abilities as artists and to end up with a really cool doll at the end.

 Wink G'DAY EVERYONE! REALLY HAPPY TO SEE THAT THERE IS INTEREST IN A DOLL SWAP.  JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW I AM A BEGINNER IN MAKING DOLLS,   AND THAT I AM FROM AUSTRALIA. DOES THIS WORRY ANYONE WITH POSTAGE COSTS.
IF YOUR INTERESTED WE'LL MAKE IT SO WE HAVE TWO MONTHS BEFORE WE NEED TO START SENDING.  WE'LL CLOSE SIGN UPS ON THE 15TH OF AUGUST 2004.  IF INTERESTED LEAVE SOME IDEAS OF WHAT TYPE OF DOLL WE CAN SWAP. Grin

with Tam living in australia, we may want to consider just a straight swap as opposed to a circulating swap because postage might get a little out of control... just a thought.
